About Local Haven Rentals

Local Haven Rentals, LLC was founded on the idea of providing our guests the opportunity to experience 30A like a local. Living amongst the community, dining at the nearby restaurants, and shopping at the quaint boutiques all while supporting small businesses and local economy is an experience outside of traditional tourism. There's no denying that something magical happens while being submersed within the culture of a community. Our guests are immediately welcomed upon arrival as if they are long-time friends and depart already anticipating their next stay because their vacation destination has now become a home. We welcome you to your Local Haven!

Why Local Haven Rentals chose Blue Mountain Beach

This house is located in the heart of Blue Mountain Beach, Florida. This quaint little beach town has the highest elevation found along Florida’s Gulf Coast, which means it also has the best views. So why the unusual name? Well, early sailors (tell the kids it was pirates) christened it Blue Mountain after seeing its high sand dunes covered in the rare blooms of the Blue Lupine lower (which are blue).

A small community with a neighborly feel, Blue Mountain Beach, Fl has a popular ice cream shop, natural foods store, bike rentals, a bakery and delicious restaurants within walking distance. The community also features two rare coastal dune lakes and connects to nature trails in the Point Washington State Forest and the bike path along Scenic 30-A.

The vibe in Blue Mountain Beach in Florida is laid-back, relaxed and friendly. It is a quiet community that is located close to Grayton Beach, Seaside and Dune Allen Beach. Families often walk up from the beach to grab an ice cream cone or fresh fruit smoothie and the restaurants here serve some of the finest fried shrimp on Scenic 30-A. If you are looking for an old-fashioned beach escape that is not crowded, but close to everything — then Blue Mountain Beach Florida is the perfect beach escape.

What makes this house unique

The coziness of 'Our Blue Heaven' property is immediately felt as you walk through the front door. The home is beautifully designed with the most eloquent costal decor, warm lighting, and crisp white furnishings that give the relaxing airy feeling of the beach. Every detail was fully thought out by the owners. You can truly sense the warmth and love put into this home.

lovely house, marred slightly by the constant building work going on next door, but very comfortable

lovely house, marred only by the constant building work going on next door and behind the property, making it difficult to enjoy the pool. Otherwise had a great time and house is very comfortable

Very nice and clean! Close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and well taken care of! Plenty of room (too much room for just three of us, but for the price why not) the pool was perfect for afternoons with a two year old who was burnt out on the beach. Would highly recommend renting a golf cart as we did and were able to run around town and go back and forth to the beach with ease! Overall wonderful vacation will definitely be back!!!

Amazing rental!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house and all the amenities available to us on our girls' trip. Definitely have hopes of returning again to this same house, both as the group who went on this trip and with extended family. There is ample room for everyone and the house is just beautiful and in a terrific location. The beach access is so close and we spent most of our time there and poolside afterwards. Very smart to have pool alarm on back door if you have small children staying there. We loved being away from all the touristy places. Groceries were only a short drive away as were some really great restaurants. Do NOT miss going to Shrimpers on Hwy 98 for fresh seafood and Key Lime Pie! It was amazing. Only two minor issues. There is not a good corkscrew that we could find so that would be a nice addition to the kitchen amenities, and although there is an ironing board, we could not find the iron. I sent a message to the owner? and never got a reply about locating the iron or if there was one. Overall, though, I would highly recommend this house.

Great house & neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Good location. Comfortable & house well stocked. Kids enjoyed the pool & bikes. We had a great time. The only down side was the construction. 3 houses under construction. It was really loud. Besides the construction it was great. I would recommend this house & location.

Awesome home with top notch property manager!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the first week of October. Weather was great, water was warm and clear; purple flag daily for jellyfish. This is by far the BEST home in Lakeside. The community pool is only 3.5-4ft deep and was nothing special; we never even used it, since this home's pool was much nicer! We spend mornings at the beach, afternoons at our own private pool! Pool was clean, poolside furniture was very nice. We were so thankful to be on this end of 30A as it is so much more quiet and peaceful and less crowded. Been staying in Destin and 30A area for over 20+ yrs and this was by far best home rental experience we had, all thanks to Elena! She went above and beyond. She takes great pride in her job, and it shows. Top notch from start to finish! This home is the best equipped home we've ever stayed in as well. We used the kids booster chair, the baby gate, the spices/oil in the kitchen pantry; the set of tools in the Laundry room, etc. Days into our stay, we found all the beach, sand and pool toys stashed in the closet at the back of the garage, so we did not need to pack and fly with all those pails n shovels! The home was the cleanest home we have rented as well. Elena provided us with a Bona wetjet and a small vacuum to use to keep the place clean while we were there. This home also has the best lot in the subdivision. Can not beat the location, north up 83 to 98 and you are at a new Publix. We rode bikes with two toddlesr in a bike trailer, adults on bikes, and two little kiddos on bikes with training wheels (all bikes provided!!) to the beach daily and it was a quick and easy trip. The only thing the home needs: a new non stick skillet would be nice (we cooked almost every meal at the house!), a keypad on the outside of the garage door-so one doesn't have to enter the home to go through and open it; blinds on back patio door; and rugs by bathroom tub and sinks. We loved the week we spent here and would rent this home from Elena again in a heartbeat!

Great vacation home!!! Close to the beach and all the other communities like Seaside, Grayton etc.

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Our Blue Heaven beach home. It just had everything and more than we could need. Great location for relaxing at the beach, shopping etc. We had so much fun riding the bikes and swimming in our own private pool. Special thanks to Elena LoPiccolo, Property Manager, and the owners for making our vacation at this beach home the best ever!! Hope to be back soon!!
